a fear of possible economic collapse is a recurring theme. speaker of the house john boehner seem interested in a compromise with democrats that could keep the country from plunging off the so-called fiscal cliff. while florida is still official officially too close to call even without its 29 collect 29 electoral college votes mr. obama won with a hefty 303 electoral votes but a mere 53% of the popular votes begging the question, was it a mandate or a draw. the president promised to reach out to leaders of both parties. speaker boehner appeared to be ready to take him up on his offer with hundreds of billions in tax hikes that could tank the economy, boehner staked out this position on behalf of his caucus. >> for the purposes of bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. what matters is where the increase revenue comes from and what type of reform comes with it. >> eliot: a few hours earlier harry reid also called for compromise. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everyth

house, but john boehner even said recently this is going to be long talks. is the first round of negotiations after the election but what is important to keep is mind is that john boehner has already back pedalled from where he was in 2011. he wasn't even willing to entertain the revenues he is willing to entertain in 2011. if you remember in 2011 when things looked like they were getting done the meetings were secret. >> jennifer: so in fact i want you to listen to a sound bite from house speaker john boehner this morning. >> the members of our majority understand how important it is to avert the fiscal cliff, and that's why i outlined a responsible path forward paving the way for entitlement reform as well as tax reform with lower rates. >> jennifer: so -- it's very interesting to watch the dance and knowing that boehner has a tea party wing that he has to placate, and knowing he has moved all over the map people have described him, really as being boxed in. >> he is boxed in, because he doesn't have the votes to pass a tax rate increase and the presi
to come to some sort of agreement but we have some fundamental obstacles, house speaker john boehner won't accept higher individual tax hikes, and harry reid says asking the wealthy to pay a their fair share is the right thing to do. >> people making all of this money have to contribute a little bit more. >> in case you missed it the president had an emotional moment when he thanked supporters earlier this week. >> you guys have done [ inaudible ] to make sure what i'm doing is approved and i'm really proud of that, and really proud of all of you, and . . . >> you got to love that. the campaign sent out the video as part of a thank you email to supporters. it did, however, also have a donate button. we're back with more show after the break. happy friday, stay with us. >> make some noise for jim breuer! >> go (bleep) in your (bleep)ing hat. >> i knew he needed to get out of the house i knew this would give him so much life. >> (grunting) >> i love getting a rise out of him. >> nice, good job. >> (grunts) >> goodnight, muffy. >> goodnight. >> love you. >> "more than me
mandate mandate. that's what i tell to the republicans. john boehner came in today. >> involves making real changes to the financial structure of the entitlement programs and close loopholes and deductions working together to create a fair simpler cleaner tax code we can give our country a stronger healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue which is what the president seeks. because the american people expect us to find common ground we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. >> cenk: now that sounds good, right? additional revenues, it sounds like--no no, no. in other words what he's saying i might close some of the loopholes and then i'll put loopholes within the loopholes but i won't touch tax rates. if i was president obama john i got news for you. we won you lost. you want to do it again? you wanting to through this two years from now? have at it, hoss, go for it. no no, i said we would be getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the rich. i did not stutter. i got elected. i got 320 electoral votes that i'll ram down your throat. no we're going to r
exchanged with general john allen. and who is general john allen? he is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan and he is the man who's nominated to be the supreme leader of nato. as you can imagine that, nomination was put on hold in light of all of these allegations. for the record, general allen denies any inappropriate relationship with kelley and these e-mails are described as flirtatious. so reaction to this unfolding and unbelievable drama is coming in from all sides a senior official close to general allen said of jill kelley, she is a nice bored rich socialite. senator dianne feinstein who heads the select intelligence committee that will investigate this whole petraeus affair finds the whole situation very tawdry. >> it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off. and you see a whole new dimension to this. >> jennifer: of course, conservative republicans like former u.n. ambassador john bolton are frothing at the mustache to politicize the scandal. oh goodness sakes. >> i think we
benghazi. here's john mccain saying he will do whatever it takes to block her nomination. >> is she effectively disqualified from being secretary of state? you would oppose her nomination? >> yes and we're talking filibuster do whatever you can to block it? >> yes. >> cenk: that's very strong language. when president obama was asked about that, he had strong language. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me, and i'm happy to have that discussion with them for them to go off the a u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with ben gassy and simply making a presentation on information she received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> cenk: that is president obama being furious. that's how it's being described. he wanted to set the record straight. is he right or wrong? let's bring back a political correspondent that is indeed epic. >> michael you and i might disagree. susan rice on the talk shows after the attacks originally seemed to be saying that it was a video that started this, just like the protests in egypt a

and top afghanistan commander john allen. the pentagon is now investigating general allen for allegedly sending thousands of inappropriate e-mails to kelley but allen is saying he did nothing wrong and the president and the army are standing by him. >> the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. as well as the job he has done in afghanistan. >> i believe john allen until somebody proves otherwise i believe that he did nothing inappropriate. >> that was white house spokesman jay carney and former army vice chief of staff peter tee ellie. jill kelley also received threatening letters from paula broadwell. now a 911 call is coming to light of kelley telling dispatchers saying she needed diplomatic protection. as the scandal widens, broadwell is holing herself up in the home of her brother near rock creek park. a jogger found broadwell's lost driver's license in the park and turned into the police. more bill is right after the break. stay with us. we have a big, big hour
deputy director may be nominated. john o 'brennan is also a possibility. investigators are asking for an investigation however how the whole issue has been handled and why it's coming to light now. the chief of the homeland security committee has questions. >> it just doesn't add up that the f.b.i. would be carrying on this type of investigation without bringing it to the president or the highest levels of the white house. >> it doesn't seem to be partisan. senator dianne feinstein in charge of the senate intelligence committee is curious why she found out something like this from media irinquiries and because it could affect national security, pertinent lawmakers should have known in advance. a woman named jane kelly was being harassed by email and brought them into the f.b.i. office. they looked into the emails and found a relationship between broadwell and petraeus. no breach of national security, even though petraeus was advised to resign. we'll be back with more after the break. crazy monday. we'll see you on the other side. ♪ stay tuned for the answer.

petraeus sex scandal. general john allen has released some 20 to 30,000 pages of inappropriate e-mails that he exchanged with the tampa temptress, jill kelly. she started the fbi investigation of petraeus in the first place. why are the military generals acting so much like politicians? well, we'll talk about that and all kinds of other issues but first, we get the latest. today's current news update, lisa ferguson's got it out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. as bill mentioned this petraeus story seems to be getting more complex by the minute. we'll give you more information here because we are continuing to learn more about this whole scandal involving now former c.i.a. director david petraeus and his extramarital affair with the author of his biography paula broadwell. another american is now getting caught up in the whole thing and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails
in the first block, actually there was hope today. you had house speaker john boehner who actually opened a door that many people thought was shut. >> for the purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. >> jennifer: what? so does speaker boehner mean what he says? here to answer that question and more, is host of "viewpoint," and former new york governor eliot spitzer. welcome inside "the war room." >> i like being here. >> jennifer: i was just railing about the far-right republicans -- >> i heard you from miles away. >> jennifer: but despite the denial, john boehner gave this statement today to suggest that revenue could be a part of a grand bargain. >> yes, but -- there was classic boehner and cantor. it was quintessential republican double talk. we are now at the moment where you have got to put your cards on the table if you are going to get an agreement. it's now november. >> jennifer: but put their card on the table by saying we would consider revenue -- they said it's
in 2012 when you can keep running against john kerry in 2004. it's all over fox this morning. they know how it ends. it's like old biff getting into the "back to the future" car. it's something else, man. >> stephanie: yes, they're literally running the old swift vote as against john kerry because he's rumored to be secretary of defense. >> eric: yes mccain wants watergate hearings and the majority looking for robo calls and impeachment. >> stephanie: they are holding a press conference because of their old pull john mccain and said hearings are not required because he went to the briefing to find out what the truth is rather than grandstanding like the increasingly bitter elf john mccain. >> they had sources sources in the testimony that petraeus game gave in september 14th. he said don't want the center line or do you want the truth. to some it looks like he was going along this was in interest of the national security or was he being blackmailed to toe the line. >> stephanie: some said this to petraeus at some point. >> yes, and then blackmail. >> stephanie: yes, clearly. wow. do we
coming off a smashing re-election victory or speaker of the house john boehner and his tea party cohort determined to hold the line against higher tax rates on the well-to-right now both sides seem to be digging in. president obama used a campaign-style white house appearance today to declare that while he's willing to compromise with the republicans his bisque position has not changed. >> obama: as i said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine spending cuts with revenue that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrats independents, and a lot of republicans. >> eliot: mr. obama also said that he planned to meet with speaker of the house john boehner and other congressional leaders at the white house next year along with business and labor leaders. the president made it clear that even while talks were under way he wanted the house to move quickly to pass a middle class tax freeze
already knew this could ruin a presidential nomination if this comes out. look at john edward. >> cenk: i want people to understand that there are reporters speculating that general petraeus might have given some of the information to the white house that might have been misleading about benghazi. that's why there might be speculation about his testimony at benghazi question about when did we know about the' fair and if they're related. >> there is a story within the story. jayar is right. the managing of this release this information as you say was probably anticipated a few days ago, maybe longer than that. as you suggest, cenk, if it's indeed, the case that he who bears some of the responsibility of benghazi, then wow that is a layered tail. >> cenk: one last thing. look, it's funny what our morality is in this country. the c.i.a. offers offers--responsibility is up and down the executive branch, right? but congressman cohen some of those drone strikes are necessary. they're against our enemies. we know who some of them are etc. some of them are signature strikes which to me sounds fun
to john king's magic wall. >> bill: no kidding. >> just in that one demographic. not inoverall viewers. in the 25 to 54. fox had all of the old people watching. >> i'm a little concerned that not as many people watch that as watch the super bowl. you would think everybody would be watching the election results. >> bill: one would think. >> plenty of celebrities have weighed in on president obama's election victory. including the big-time obama supporter beyonce. she posted a message that said take that, mitches. this is the first anti-romney message she's posted. she's always just been positive for obama. >> her husband is jay-z. >> bill: yes. >> one u.s. marine has an ambitious goal to help the wounded warrior project. sergeant enrique trevino of florida is on his way to doing one million pushups this year all for the charity. he tells abc -- >> bill: is that like nonstop? >> one million pushups for the year. >> bill: nonstop? >> it started out as a new year's resolution. starts his day by doing 500 p
high-ranking military official, commander of the forces in afghanistan, john allen. florida socialite jill kelley complained about harassing e-mails and contacted a friend at the fbi. the account was found to have belonged to paula broadwell. she was given access to david petraeus. locate the was evidence of an affair between petraeus and miss broadwell. the information was leak and petraeus resigned. as more information trickled out, the story got crazier. the harassing e-mails revealed to be not so threatening. the investigation moved forward because of kel little's friendship with the fbi agent she contacted to complain about the e-mails. a friendship that involved the agent's sharing photo of himself. these photos caused the agent to be remove and launched an investigation into his own actions. then this morning and perhaps the otest turn yet reports surfaced of 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails connecting general john allen to kelley. john allen took control of the forces in afghanistan after general
secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and i think that's some
a conversion of interest or views between the president and john boehner. i'm not sure that i see it yet. the president said you have to go to the clinton area, 36% top marginal rate. and you said a few loopholes that's fine but not the real battle we should be undertaking. am i correct? >> now boehner we're back to where we were before the election in some respects. there is a significant core of the republican party that simply will not raise taxes under any sixths. they will not raise rates. they still feel that they are pledged to grover norquist, maybe not to the american people. not to the constitution, but to grover norquist. therefore they're not going to go along--even if boehner wants them to go along. both sides the president and democrats on one side, boehner and the republicans are basically maneuvering for bargaining position for what is going to be a long-term negotiation. >> eliot: they're just shadow boxing, i think that's exactly right. i wonder and i'm trying to assess--i have no knowledge of what goes on inside the republican party but i'm trying to discern if boehner
, there are going to be more democrats in the house and the senate and even john boehner said that he -- he seemed to indicate that he wanted to wait until after january. do you think that that's going to happen, that there might be an extension of the runway, if you will, to allow for there to be negotiations in the next term? >> well, something has to be done now because the fiscal cliff and the sequestration across-the-board cuts in january. we'll have to see. i spoke with the president today. we've been speaking as a leadership team. we would like to do as much of it as we can now because -- if we can. but we don't really know what speaker boehner's words mean in terms of coming back. i do know that one thing we could do that would be very positive and very immediate would be to pass our farm bill which has $23 billion in deficit reduction in it. but i mean, we would like to do as much as we can. we've got a huge debt. we've got to address what needs to happen on tax reform as well. but we'll have to see. at this poi
. another investigation of general john allen allegedly exchanged 20 to 30,000 e-mails with jill kelly, the married woman who reportedly kicked off the investigation of general petraeus. the general joseph dunford is in line to succeed him and leon pi net at a has askedp. >> joy: netta has asked them to now we now know they met back in harvard in 2006. she wrote a biography but their affair did not allegedly start until september of 2011 after he took over at the c.i.a. it ended four months ago but in may jill kelly, the woman who volunteers as a social planner for the military went to a friend at the fbi and complained she was getting harassing e-mails from paula broadwell. he had been sending shirtless photos to kelly and that's how they found out. it's so convoluted. we're back after the break. >>(narrator) bill press is on current tv. >>liberal and proud of it. >>(narrator) unafraid, outspoken, and above all politically direct. >>we'll do our best to carry the flag from 6 to 9 every morning.

along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as
general's left and right. so what does general john allen have to do with this? >> as kelley and general john allen have been linked in an inappropriate relationship with communications. the f.b.i. agent she contacted to kick off the investigation he sent kelly topless photos of himself and went to congress when he felt the agency didn't act fast enough. >> what are these guys doing?% i think the more important question is why do we even know about any of this stuff? why was any of this investigated in the first place? we explain why jill kelly who was asked about these anonymous emails sent to her in the first place, she asked a friend in the f.b.i. to look into it. here's a quote: >> cenk: that's apparently paula broad well sending these messages no one anonymously to jill kelley. where's the threat? where's the crime. why is the f.b.i. literally making a national case out of this. we live in a surveillance state. this is insanity. the source continues: >> cenk: but there's no threats. why is the f.b.i. doing this case which then goes into their most private emails and sex lives and if
ice cream. >> stephanie: no! john costar republican of washington who also joins the other losy rapy republicans. who said the method of conception doesn't change the definition of life. who said that? >> reince preibus! >> stephanie: no. losy rapy republican men all down in defeat. ain't that something? okay. evan in maryland. you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi, stephanie, queen of the segue, because i want to make two points one about arrogance and two how it would seal the republicans destiny -- >> stephanie: that's just like you to think you know about arrogance. >> caller: that's right. they were arrogant to make fun of barack obama because he was is a community organize and they kicked their butts by organizing and getting out to the poll. they are arrogant enough to say that elizabeth warren couldn't be on the consumer protection board, and now she is a colleague. >> stephanie: yeah maybe now sarah palin understands what a organizer does now. >> caller: yeah. i hope daddy is listening -- but she said we needed a responsible republican pa
john boehner's attitude toward any tax hike at all. take a listen. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it could pass the senate. so the votes aren't there. what i did yesterday was lay out a reasonable, responsible way forward to avoid the fiscal cliff and that's through putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming our tax code. >> eliot: for more on the perils of the fiscal cliff and the choices before us, i'm joined by robert reich professor at u.c. berkeley's goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage what has gone wrong with our economy and democracy and how to fix it." professor, thank you for joining us. >> good evening. >> eliot: seems to me the choice is one of jobs versus short-term deficits. which is the right choice and explain to us why this is such a critical juncture. >> well, jobs has to be the choice we make right now. it is a very critical juncture because if we fall for the idea that the defici
play a fun game. susan rice or john kerry who do you think? >> i would say kerry. >> eliot: why because of susan rice and the benghazi? >> no. because with you know people who know their way around the hill. there is a domestic component to driving foreign policy that can't be overlooked. >> eliot: tina? >> his speech at the convention was an audition piece. >> eliot: not every audition works. >> yes. that was a kerry no one saw before. i was -- in the stadium. people were kind of -- sighed when he got up there. he knocked it out of park. >> eliot: people remembered that. >> he was the surprise sleeper speaker. >> eliot: treasury, tim geithner leaving. does he take somebody from wall street? >> undoubtedly. >> eliot: you think he does? >> absolutely. >> eliot: come on! so many people understand banking finance better than those guys. >> yes. ralph nader. >> eliot: robert rice. i would put him in any cabinet position. host of new york 1 errol louis and editor tina but dupuy. our special election nig
republicans say after elections. they say go right go right. listen to john corner in charge of getting more republicans into the senate. he says: >> bill: we've all lost. it's amazing. there are holdouts, leading them chief ghoul himself mitch mcconnell: >> bill: no, no, loser, you don't get to talk about failures when you were a gigantic failure. you lost seats in your party. shh. let me bring in the rest of the crew here. anna, you know as i just said that i've never seen any of the conservatives say we're outnumbered, lost the country. this is something new isn't it? >> it is new. i think that it's great that they've realized that this conservative idealogy isn't winning anymore. we talked about republicans abscessed with redefining rape. these kind of topics are not popular with the american public. i don't know why they continually wanted to talk about it. we passed so many different ballot initiatives that are so liberal. for instance, two states right now have legalized marijuana for recreational use. three more legalized gay marriage. that's a big deal. >> bill: we're on the march.
of the principles that john mccain espoused, and even president bush. do you think that's the first place they'll go to build consensus with the president. >> that's a natural place to go because it's in their self interest to not lose roughly 12%, 15% of the electorate as they move forward. they'll lose texas. they'll lose virginia and north north carolina. florida. that's a formula politics, as you know, you want to grow. you don't want to do things that shrink. that's an area that is incumbent on the president to give a framework. i say this as a democrat. democrats shouldn't just talk about this issue as we're better than republicans. i mean, democrats need to be very affirmative about how important the latino population is to our country. they did great things day in an day out. they're a great part of our future, and it has to be more than hey we're better than the republicans. this is a very important constituency and we need to do right by them. >> gavin: what about gay marriage. there are some final counts in washington state but the three states--two states affirmative and the one that pul
